Review of Collapse by Richard Stephenson

Collapse (New America Book One)

Author: Richard Stephenson

Availability: Amazon

Overall Rating 1.5 out of 5 Stars

Overall Summary

Collapse tells the tale of the breakdown of society in the very near future as it buckles under the pressure of various new threats from a deadlier Iran, to environmental disasters. The story is told from many different viewpoints and the reader is taken along for a ride that he or she is unlikely to forget.

The cast of characters is long and varied in this book, and each one is trying to navigate the crumbling world around them. For example, there is the character of Howard Beck a millionaire computer genius who suffers from Asperger Syndrome. Then there is Maxwell Harris, a small town sheriff who is just trying to maintain some semblance of law and order all while dealing with his own demons. There are many others, of course, including a convict trying to rescue his kids, government officials with more than service to the country on their mind, and a pediatrician that is forced to use skills she never thought she would after medical school.

Summary

This is the second installment in the Rosi’s Doors saga, and not surprisingly is the winner of the 2012 Readers Favorite Award in the YA Science Fiction/Fantasy category.

The story finds Rosi Carol trying to balance her life as an apprentice Time Guardian and that of a normal teenage girl with friends, romantic interests, and life in general. However, things get a little more interesting when Kirk, the brother of her beloved Danny, her best friend Angie, and herself gets pulled into the past through an errant time tear. Almost instantly, they realize that they’ve landed just in time to see the start of the American Revolutionary War, and exactly how the sleepy town of New Richmond plays an integral part in the bloodshed to come. Rosi knows that they shouldn’t be there, that the presence of the people from her time will have an undeniable effect on history. And it’s up to her to try and make it right.
